Gigondas Hominis Fides 2007

The Gigondas "Hominis Fides" by Château de St. Cosme is an enigmatic wine with an astounding balance of finesse and depth. Sourced from 90 year old vines in the limestone and sand rich vineyards of the Miocene epoch, the Hominis Fides is a benchmark for quality.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of forest floor are complimented with nuances of freshly muddled fennel. The Gigondas "Hominis Fides" bursts with flavors of rich strawberry compote and allspice.

Food Pairing

Perfect for Filet Mignon with a balsamic glaze and roasted asparagus.
